During an appearance on The TODAY Show, Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) stressed that "the threat" to American democracy continues one year after the attack on the United States Capitol continues and rebuked members of her own party for backing former President Donald Trump's lies that the 2020 general election was stolen.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) chose her words carefully and intentionally while laying out the case for potentially criminally charging Trump for 1/6.
Sean Hannity threw a tantrum and accused Liz Cheney of trying to smear him after she released his text to Mark Meadows.
Republicans have been worried and tried to do everything in their power to shut down the investigation, but it has been announced that the 1/6 Committee will hold multiple weeks of public hearings.
Rep. Liz Cheney responded to Sen. Ted Cruz accusing her of Trump Derangement Syndrome by telling him that a real man would defend his family.
Representatives Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) are the only two Republicans to back censuring Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and are expected to vote for a resolution today that would take away his committee seats for posting an animated video that showed him killing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and attacking President Joe Biden.
That the two Republicans will vote to censure Gosar is not a surprise.
Cheney told The Associated Press last week that she supports censuring Gosar “for his continued indefensible activities.” Kinzinger, meanwhile, tweeted yesterday that the House has “to hold Members accountable who incite or glorify violence, who spread and perpetuate dangerous conspiracies.”
We have to hold Members accountable who incite or glorify violence, who spread and perpetuate dangerous conspiracies. The failure to do so will take us one step closer to this fantasized violence becoming real.⁰⁰To be clear, I’ll be voting yes on the Gosar censure resolution.
During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Rep. Liz Cheney said that anyone spreading the 1/6 false flag lie is un-American.
Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) came just shy of breaking her own $1.9 million fundraising record, raising $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2021 as she fends off a challenge from Harriet Hageman, an attorney who is running with the endorsement of former President Donald Trump. She’s raised over $5 million in total this year thus far.
“Rep. Cheney continues to receive historic levels of support because she is upholding her oath to the Constitution, delivering for the people she represents in Wyoming, and offering a serious path forward for the Republican Party,” Amy Edmonds, a senior adviser for Cheney’s campaign, said in a statement.
“She is humbled that so many are standing with her in this fight and she will never waver in her commitment to Wyoming or her determination to do what’s right for our country,” she added.
Cheney angered her own party and was ousted from her leadership position in the House after she pushed back against Trump’s falsehoods about the 2020 general election. Trump had
issued a statement, more than three months after President Joe Biden took office, calling Biden’s victory “the big lie.”
Republicans are scary, indeed. But the moderates and mainstream media members who aid and abet them, living in denial, are just as scary, if not scarier.
Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) has been named the vice chair of the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot of January 6.
Cheney’s appointment was announced by Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the committee’s chairman.
“Her leadership and insights have shaped the early work of the Select Committee and this appointment underscores the bipartisan nature of this effort,” he said, lauding her “commitment” to get to the truth of the matter even as House Republicans continue to denigrate the committee and its purpose.
In a statement last week, Cheney said the committee would conduct a thorough, professional, and nonpartisan investigation.
“We owe it to the American people to investigate everything that led up to, and transpired on, January 6th. We will not be deterred by threats or attempted obstruction and we will not rest until our task is complete,” she said at the time.
Back in 2016, the GOP ceded the Republican party to Donald Trump and they have never gotten it back. As a result, the new faces of the party are people like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert.
A tiny percentage of Republican lawmakers have tried to push back against the Trump takeover. Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney are two of those members. Both are sitting on the 1/6 panel studying the insurrection.
Kinzinger and Cheney are also facing huge blowback from their party. Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called the duo “Pelosi Republicans.” And Lauren Boebert is now calling for the two members to be banned from the Republican cloakroom.
The freshman Colorado Rep. told reporters:
“These members should not be allowed in our closed door private meetings or even the Republican cloakroom. We had important meetings yesterday in the cloakroom. I saw Kinzinger in there. Why is he able to be part of those conversations while he goes back and confers with the opposition. Both of these politicians, Kinzinger and Cheney, have worked more with Pelosi than they have with myself, my colleagues or even [minority] leader McCarthy.”
As horrible as the events of 1/6 were, the vast majority of Republican lawmakers would like people to forget about it. A select few GOP congresspeople were willing to investigate the matter.
Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney both accepted Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to participate in the 1/6 panel. And for their service to their country, they were branded “Pelosi Republicans.”
Still, as Cheney explained during a Tuesday appearance on CNN, she is willing to serve her country before she serves her party.
The Wyoming lawmaker was asked by Jake Tapper, “
These MAGA forces tried to steal the election once and they’re going to try again. And we don’t hear Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise and Elise Stefanik say, no, no, no, we would never do that again. There is zero attempt at reassuring people that what you are suggesting is not true.”
Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said the House select committee tasked with investigating the events of January 6 must uncover everything that happened at the White House that day as well.
Investigators must figure out “what happened every minute of that day in the White House — every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during and after the attack,” Cheney said in opening remarks at the committee’s first public hearing.
